BUFFALO, New York — Rapper DMX has been sentenced to serve six months in an upstate New York jail for failing to pay child support.

The Erie County Sheriff's Office says the 44-year-old rapper whose real name is Earl Simmons was placed in the Erie County Holding Center in Buffalo on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the New York City Sheriff's Office tells WPIX-TV that DMX was arrested right before his scheduled performance at Radio City Music Hall on June 26 in New York City for several "issues outstanding."

Those issues included $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey. No charges have been filed in the Newark case.
